Gerald Durrell was difficult, eccentric, funny, cruel and irrisistible. He was the author of a number of very successful books the most famous being MY FAMILY AND OTHER ANIMALS (still a set text in school). He was also famous for his championing of the conservation cause and for his zoo in Jersey. David Hughes was a friend for forty years (even edited some of Durrell's books in the 50s). And this will be a very personal and evocative memoir, containing fascinating reminiscences directly from the mouth of Durrell and his family.
